Share a ‘Brief Encounter’ with your loved one in the Lune Valley

Hornby, Lancashire

Embark on a romantic break at the award-winning Castle Inn, right in the heart of Lancashire’s inspirational Lune Valley.

Fall in love with the Lune Valley like many before you. Poet Thomas Gray, for example, described the Crook O’Lune as "every feature which constitutes a perfect landscape".

Start your romantic weekend break with a walk up to Gray's Seat near Caton, where the magnificent panorama includes the Ingleborough and the Howgill Fells. For a romantic rural retreat, pick the Castle Inn, a beautiful 18th century coaching inn with restaurant that sits in the picturesque village of Hornby. Relax in front of the fire in the bar or enjoy a meal made from the finest local ingredients in the restaurant.

A short drive away is Carnforth Station Heritage Centre in the market town of Carnforth, on the edge of Morecambe Bay. This was the famous setting for David Lean's romantic film ‘Brief Encounter’ where, if you’re looking for romantic things to do, you can pose underneath the famous clock.
